Iran FM links bus bombing to Warsaw meeting

Benny Gantz speaking to Israel Resilience activists

On January 29, three members of an Iranian bomb squad sent to the scene of an explosion in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan province, were wounded when a second device blew up as they were trying to defuse it, police said at the time.

The group Jaish al Adl claimed reponsibility for the attack, which also wounded ten Guard members, Fars reported.

The attack came on the day of a US-led conference in Warsaw that included discussions on what the United States describes as Iran's "malign influence" across the wider Middle East.

The Revolutionary Guards said in a statement that a vehicle loaded with explosives had targeted a bus carrying affiliated border guards.

The statement does not give the exact number of the martyred soldiers and the injured.

Twelve members of the Guards were among 25 people killed last autumn by gunmen on a military parade in the city of Ahvaz in the southwest.

And in October, Jaish al-Adl kidnapped at least 10 security personnel, including several Revolutionary Guards, at a border post in Mirjaveh.

Suicide bombings are rare in Iran where security is pretty stable.

A coordinated June 7, 2017 Islamic State group assault on Parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution.

The group's Quds Force unit said the United States, its allies and Zionism shared responsibility for the attack, without elaborating on the claim.

In a tweet, Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Javad Zarif, who has been critical of the Warsaw gathering, obliquely implied there could be a connection between the summit and the attack on the Revolutionary Guards.

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, described the conference convened by the U.S. as the Warsaw Circus, and said it was "no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day" that the talks began. President Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise of tearing up Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers, withdrew the US from the accord last May. Zarif wrote on Twitter.

Khamenei, who earlier approved President Hassan Rouhani's outreach to the West during the nuclear deal negotiations, dismissed any future dealings with the U.S.
